The U.S. Justice Department launched a $3 million program Friday to help prosecute crimes against women and provide services for victims in the Bakken oil-producing region of western North Dakota and eastern Montana.
As the march to the November elections heats up, voters can expect to find fewer and fewer issues that unite Democrats and Republicans.
The Justice Department has expanded its ongoing effort to uncover the mortgage fraud and abuse that helped precipitate the 2008 financial crisis, offering "substantial financial help" to corporate insiders willing to serve as whistleblowers.
A Maryland-based health care company accused of defrauding Medicaid and other federal programs will pay $150 million in a settlement announced Monday.
The special prosecutors also can handle other criminal cases such as those that are drug related but "the real focus here are crimes against women," said West, citing a growing caseload of domestic violence and sexual assault in the region. "That will be the priority."
West said $900,000 will be used over the next three years to fund a prosecutor on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Montana and another on the Fort Berthold Reservation in the heart of North Dakota's oil patch.
